Just checking to see if those of you following the weight loss track managed to lose some weight!

For me...as of this morning, 3kg (about 6.6 pounds)! I'm happy with that, though I was sort of hoping for 10 lb. But slow and steady is good! And, I did do let's say quite a lot of extra sampling...(for recipe development and shooting purposes...the perils of running Just Bento. ^_^)

How about you?

I lost approximately 6 to 8lbs over the 5 weeks of the challenge! I'm really happy with that and I'm continuing my bento lunches as I find they really fill me up and are healthier (not to mention cheaper) than buying lunch every day while at work.

The Boy swears that I have, but I only weighed myself at the end of the challenge, not the beginning and thus ruined the scientific process. My pants are now too big though. Bento is forcing me to shop.

As of yesterday morning it all added up to 2.7 kg. I seem to alternate weeks; losing heaps one week and none the next. Seeing as I only actually needed to lose 5.5 kg to get to my supposed ideal weight, I think that's pretty damned good.

Re: So...did you lose any weight during the Challenge?

I did not have an operational scale at the start, so between that and really not wanting to know I also did not weigh myself before the challenge, but I know that I lost some weight. My pants and skirts were a bit snug after the holidays and some stressful events this past year and now they fit properly again plus I am back down to my low weight.

I lost 50 lb. about 2 years ago, so it has been good to be able to keep it off, and hopefully I will be able to lose the rest of what I need to with some help from bentos.

Re: So...did you lose any weight during the Challenge?

I know I lost six by around week 3 or 4, but I haven't been weighed since. I'm eager to do so since I've been rowing every day for over a week now! I'll stop by doctor's office; they have a good scale (particularly compared to my non-existent one). I'm definitely getting a bit fitter and feeling better. Kudos to you all who are trying!

I've been losing a pound a week during the challenge, and I'm now two pounds away from my goal. I've lost a total of 28 pounds since last July, and bentos have definitely helped me with portion control.

I'm so glad to see that bentos are working for a lot of people losing weight!
